BAZAAR at polo

The na­tion’s polo stars bat­tled it out at the RMPA In­ter­na­tional Polo League, where BAZAAR was of­fi­cial me­dia. Jogo Polo de­feated Head Hunters for third place, just be­fore KotaSAS-IBIL and Ran­hill Polo went head to head in the fi­nals. “To­day’s game was quite tough; both teams were pretty even. It was very in­tense and I think it was one of the long­est games we’ve played,” com­mented Quzier Am­bak of Jogo Polo. “It was quite tir­ing for the horses, too, and we missed out on a lot of chukkas. But in the end, we man­aged to score the last goal so I’m very happy with the win.”

For the fi­nals, it was KotaSAS-IBIL who emerged vic­to­ri­ous with 6.5-6 in their favour, de­fend­ing the ti­tle they won in 2012. “It feels fan­tas­tic to win the same tour­na­ment this year. It was an in­tense game – very close,” said YM Tengku Amir Nasser Ibrahim of KotaSAS-IBIL. “That half-goal we won ear­lier on in the game made a huge dif­fer­ence. We got a big lead at the start as well, which is great. They caught up to­wards the end but we kept fight­ing and we kept de­fend­ing, we were in front all the way for all five chukkas. It’s a great re­sult – even though we didn’t par­tic­i­pate in the first tour­na­ment in Thai­land and over­all we came third – so I’m pretty happy.”

When asked if this was KotaSAS-IBIL’s re­venge for Ran­hill Polo’s 9-8 win in the re­cent Royal Pa­hang Clas­sic tour­na­ment, the young prince laughed, “Well, you could call it re­venge, I guess. But it was a good fi­nal.”

Nev­er­the­less, Ran­hill Polo took the hon­ours as over­all league cham­pi­ons, win­ning the RMPA In­ter­na­tional League for the first time in nine years.
